REVIEWS

Reviews from the 2016 Production


"Virtues, Including Falling Snow and a Lovely New Song By Tanner, Urging Us to Count Our Blessings. Watching Any Version Of The Rep’s 'Carol,' I Always Do."
– Mike Fischer, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel


"This Cast of Actors, Professionals and Children, are Uniformly Spectacular As They Capture Life Surrounded by the Wondrous Sets of Todd Edward Ivins … It’s an Incredible Feat of Both Creative Taste and Engineering That Is Not to Be Missed."
– Dave Begel, OnMilwaukee


"Clements’ New Version of 'A Christmas Carol' is Like This Surprise Gift You Didn’t Expect Santa Would Leave You On Christmas Morning."
– Matthew Perta, ShowBiz Chicago


"If You’ve Never Had The Pleasure Of Witnessing This Colossal Event, Take Advantage Of Attending The Milwaukee Rep’s Theatrical Masterpiece. It Is A Piece That Keeps On Giving. May It Thrive For Another 41 Years. Kudos To Director Mark Clements And His Artistic Team For This Winter Wonder."
– Julie McHale, Waukesha Freeman


"Clements’ New Version of 'A Christmas Carol' is Like This Surprise Gift You Didn’t Expect Santa Would Leave You On Christmas Morning."
– Matthew Perta, ShowBiz Chicago


Clements' World Premiere Adaptation Offers Another Tradition For Milwaukee Audiences To Embrace In This Carol Overflowing With Joyous Laughter And Light To Be Celebrated The Entire Year."
– Peggy Sue Dunigan, Broadway World


"The Newfound Interactive Levity Helps To Balance This New Carol As Clements Has Made The Darkness Visible And Menacing And The Spaces Small And Confining. It Works Wonderfully Amid The Angular, Stacked-Up-City-Of-London Sets By Todd Edward Ivins. The Use Of Two Turntables Only Adds To The Supernatural Effects As Characters Move In And Out Of The Shadows And Light—Literally And Figuratively."
– Harry Cherkinian, Shepherd Express


"The Production… Is Stunning. There Was Obvious Delight In The Most Talked About Technical Coup, The 'Snow' That Fell Throughout The Theater At The End Of Each Act."
– Paul Kosidowski, Milwaukee Magazine
